Mathematical model for transport, interconversion, and removal of gaseous and particulate air pollutants—application to the urban plume


A steady state, three-dimensional solution of the atmospheric diffusion equation including settling, deposition, and first-order removal is presented. The solution is applied to the prediction of airborne concentrations of gaseous and particulate pollutants in the case in which gases are converted to secondary particulate matter. The conversion of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons to particulate sulfate, nitrate, and organics in the Los Angeles atmosphere and urban plume is analysed.
